Jorge Masvidal signs with strikeforce

Jorge Masvidal (20-6), who recently dropped a decision to #10 Ranked Welterweight, Paul Daley, has signed with Strikeforce, and will be dropping back down to lightweight. He talked to BuddhaSport about it:

"I signed a 6 fight, 2 year deal with Strikeforce. Let the world know I am going to knock out everybody they put in front of me. I don't have an opponent yet but I want a big fight; you know. I want Melendez or the next big name. No B level fighters. Beerbohm is good but nobody really knows him. I would like to get Kawajiri, that would be great."

Good signing by strikeforce, be interesting to see who he fights first

Masvidal returning to StrikeForce following Daley-fight

Quote:
Jorge Masvidal is returning to Strikeforce.

Strikeforce spokesperson Mike Afromowitz today told MMAjunkie.com that the lightweight fighter has signed a six-fight deal with the organization.

However, no return date is set for Masvidal, who dropped a close unanimous decision to welterweight Paul Daley at this past weekend's Shark Fights 13 event in Texas.

Other terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Masvidal (20-6 MMA, 2-0) hasn't fought for Strikeforce since February 2008, when he earned a decision victory over Ryan Healy at "Strikeforce at the Dome." Prior to that fight, he scored a knockout victory over Matt Lee during Strikeforce's inaugural trip to the Playboy Mansion in 2007.

Since that first Strikeforce stint, the 25-year-old American Top Team fighter has fought for a variety of organizations, including World Victory Road's Japanese-based Sengoku event series and Bellator Fighting Championships, where he competed in the season-one lightweight tournament before an upset to Toby Imada in the semifinal round.

Sources told MMAjunkie.com that Masvidal didn't enter Bellator's season-two tourney because of contract concerns, and his past three fights have been one-fight deals with G-Force Fights, ASTRA and Shark Fights.

Long near the 155-pound division's top 15, Masvidal, who's also boxed professionally, has posted past victories over the likes of Roli Delgado, Joe Lauzon, Steve Berger, Yves Edwards and Ryan Schultz.

Great news for StrikeForce - this kid is really impressive... Didn't catch his match with Daley, but from what I have seen of this guy he is very entertaining

It's a good thing Strikeforce picked him up. He was doing a good job against Daley.
